Rock Hudson’s False ‘Everyone is vulnerable’ Legacy’

It was the world’s most famous case of “AIDS.” In June 1984, actor Rock Hudson, the good-looking, crew-cut symbol of perfect American manhood, received his diagnosis of the new syndrome, based on a “positive” result on a test that had been on the market for less than two months.

The hype around Hudson’s illness and death turned AIDS into a general “epidemic” from an affliction among a subset of gay men. But we find other, more likely, causes for Hudson’s death. The idea that AIDS could happen to anyone, accordingly, rests on a lie.

In the official biography he commissioned while wasting away, this famous yet very private man wrote, “I want the truth to be told, because it sure as hell hasn’t been told before.” The media indeed didn’t tell the truth, in the rush to enroll us all in a sexual hysteria.
